Night skiing Gosau

Night is turned into day in the Dachstein West ski area, as Gosau offers a small night ski area. At Ötscherlift, the bottom section of the valley run is illuminated for night skiing one a week. The approx. 1 km night ski piste is marked a red slope. As part of the night ski offer, Brumsipiste nearby the Hornspitzbahn lift's valley station is also illuminated for beginners and children. Both pistes can be used in the extended opening hours from 18:30 - 20:30. The Hornspitz umbrella bar invites you stay at the end of your night skiing evening. The Ötscher area also offers a racing track as well as the Ötscher Kids Park with steep curves and wavy track.

Après ski Gosau

Gosau is a rather traditional, upper Austrian mountain village, so an over-abundance of apres ski isn't offered. However, sociability and hospitality are top priorities and families in particular feel very welcome here.

Many leisure time activities are offered here, e.g. horse-drawn sleigh rides, tobogganing, curling or even enjoying a drink at the local regulars' table. Gosau also offers over 40 km of wonderful, snowy winter hiking trails that are just waiting to be explored. After a strenuous day on the piste, a visit to the umbrella bar at the Hornspitz valley run is definitely worthwhile.

Snowpark: Snowpark Dachstein West Gosau

The ski region Dachstein West offers a total of four different funparks and is great for all freestylers! Should you want to start the fun directly in Golling, the "Playground Snowpark Gosnau" is perfectly located directly at the valley station. Via the park's own lift, freestylers can explore the runs of the park, which offers many different obstacles.

Those who are looking for the ultimate kick, should definitely visit the "Snowpark Dachstein West"! Obstacles such as the 9 m long curved box, medium kicker with 6 - 8 m long tables, and a rail double pipe, as well as a 4 m long jib box, a pro kicker with 15 m long table and a wall ride catapult you into the sky and provide the ultimate adrenaline kick. Too daring for you? No problem - there are also beginner elements, such as the rainbow butter box, the kinked butter box, and the wave butter box, which are great when you want to experience the slide feeling.

Professional shapers guarantee first-class shred sessions and transform the park into a must-see for everyone who gets bored on the regular pistes. Additionally, a free Wi-Fi hotspot keeps you updated and offers you an instant way of sharing your new achievements.

Furthermore, the "Rookie Park Russbach" and the "Youngster Freestyle Park Annaberg" are definitely worth a visit. Both are especially well-suited for beginners.
